My earliest childhood memories are – Owning & operating our family businesses. I moved to Yakima in 1995 to open our new business location, which I managed for 16+ years.
I have owned, managed, and operated several successful businesses. This has helped me develop a strong sense of connection with individuals and my community. Being a business owner, I have learned the value of hard work and service to maintain a successful relationship with my clients and the community. I am very dedicated and ambitious. Having practiced Real Estate for the past ten years has allowed me to bring my skills, trustworthiness, commitment, and personality into this exciting field.
Whether this is your first home purchase or you’re selling your tenth; I understand the importance of this difficult decision. This is not an everyday occurrence, and it can be stressful. The financial considerations are significant. My mission is to provide an exceptional level of service to my clients, to not only meet their expectations but to exceed them in both a timely and professional manor. With honesty and integrity I will provide service that will be remembered and recommended. I strive to make this important process as smooth as possible. I am satisfied only when my clients are satisfied.
I will give you the information you need to make an informed decision for you and your family, and will help provide the comfort and peace of mind, and be there with you thru the entire transaction and for years thereafter.
I firmly believe that you should also be happy with the process. My personality, social skills, dedication, trustworthiness, and willingness to work hard will ensure that the process is as smooth and enjoyable as possible. I look forward to partnering up with you in working toward your dreams!
Awards and Designations
I have worked very hard to achieve many designations including: Managing Broker, Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Certified Negotiating Expert (CNE), Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR), Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES), and I am a State Certified and teach the First Time Home Buyers Classes. Each designation requires many clock hours of classes, some even require so many closings & most have a state certified exam before achieving the designations. I use this knowledge daily in my exciting business career. I truly enjoy my Real Estate career and it has never been a ‘job’ to me.
I have been nominated and received many awards, but the best award is the referrals from my many past clients –
